jb groves&godfrey is creating ‘The Duchess Chronicles’
1

patron

jb groves&godfrey, is a formally trained visual artist and self described Storyteller who was born and raised between the irrigation ditches and gravel roads on the edge of the great south-eastern Alberta Badlands in the 1970s.

In a village largely defined by people and characters unaware of their own uniqueness, a full spectrum of nationalities and ‘mother tongues’ all speaking English until angry. Black, Mennonite and ‘Regular’ cowboys, farmers, suffragettes, dads and mom’s wrangling cows, sheep, children, souls and dinosaurs in a lush, yet artificial Eden.

A Kingdom of ditches carved out from an Empire of Dust, ditches best for catching minnows, swimming, even to be rescued by your dog from. Irrigation canals fed by larger ones, man made lakes, aqueducts and damns on the Bow River built over 100 years ago and maintained by the farmers and Ditch Riders since.

Landscapes, places, features and people all tethered to the little village of Duchess, Alberta and its less than 350 souls. All anchored to the earth by Uncle Bob’s store, the Pool Hall, the Park on Main Street, Mr and Mrs Martin’s Garden, Owen and Minnie’s front porch and no less than 4 Churches, 2 of them Mennonite.
